The band started in 1982 as one of Leeds' four famous 'drum machine bands'. The other three being Merciful Release labelmatesThe Sisters Of Mercy, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry and The Three Johns.

Fronted by the two pronged attack of dual vocalists Simon D and Rosie Garland, the band built a large and loyal following throughout the UK and Europe. They released five singles/EP's, first on Merciful Release then on their own Rebirth label…culminating in the successful indie chart topping Snakedance and Walk Into The Sun.

After waiting nearly thirty years for the album to become obsolete, they have decided that now is the time to reform and record their first proper album…and perhaps do some more live shows to showcase the new material.
